Roz Bound: Picton Branch

Roz Bound’s recently published book Aging Consciously, Dying Awake, is a memoir in story and poems where she reflects on aspects of her life experience to see behind illusions and traditions and envision an evolving path forward.

In this interactive talk, Roz will share her writing journey and the intrinsic value of leaving one’s story behind, for family, community, and even the cosmos. “The past grounds the present and informs the future.” Roz lives in Wellington, has facilitated Open Floor there for local writers for 23 years, has an MFA in Creative Writing, and loves supporting writers in their creative process.
